My son's first birthday is a little over two months away, but I'm already thinking about it. I have that one dysfunctional family member, of course. My cousin ( a HORRIBLY disrespectful and mean person, not to mention one of the worst parents I've ever known) has 8 kids. I want to invite my aunt (his mom) , but I KNOW she'll try to bring all 8 kids. They're horribly misbehaved, and run wild. Basically, I don't want them there. However, if we tell her that, she'll no doubt get super offended, try to start a bunch of family drama, and she'll end up giving my dad(her brother) crap. I don't want my dad to feel awkward or uncomfortable, but if you knew these kids and their dad, you'd know why I don't want them there. How do I go about making it known to my aunt that they aren't invited? What would be the least offensive way to put it? I don't want to be mean, but I'm not going to let them ruin my son's party, ya know?
